The difficulties in executing an image like this are numerous. Sometimes, as is the case here, as many as eight or ten lights must be added just to brighten the exterior facades. Most of the time, existing exterior lighting is a problem, and must be eliminated in post, or the photograph must be made prior to the time when the lights are programmed to turn on. When the building is occupied, it is nearly impossible to arrange for the tenants to turn on their lights to illuminate the windows, because the management cannot insist on that (understandably), which means that the windows must be left dark, or they must be fixed in retouching. And the sheer amount of signage that must be retouched in post production is extreme. All tolled from shooting to finishing post, this image probably took seven hours to complete.
